REMEMBERINGtwo of my high school friends,
Larry R Henshaw
From a classmate,
Larry was my best friend while in Vietnam. We talked about a lot of different things, he talked about the band he was in back home, his family, and all the things we were going to do when we got back home.
Well, Larry never made it back home the way he had planned.
I was with him the day he was killed. I will never forget it as long as I live, he has been my hero for the last thirty-five years. Larry was the best - he was a great person, and my brother. I have always carried him in my heart and it took a long time for me to say his name out loud, it was like a very sacred word to me. God Bless you, Larry, you are in my heart forever.
I still remember us pulling OP duty (when I was back in the infantry) and later flying over you as we shared a wave and peace sign ... while you stood looking up from a dirty bunker on some red clay covered firebase.
Well, Larry we came into country together but you broke your promise to me ... I forgive you, my brother ... we did not leave country together ... Maybe not physically but you have always remained in my heart ... I share your memory and your name with many ... You are not forgotten.
I will always remember the day that I heard of you dying ... It changed my life forever.
You are sorely missed, my friend and brother.
